27 August 2019
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Swyfft, an insurance service provider that uses artificial intelligence to save customers and agents time and money, today announced they are partnering with Sheltr, the subscription app that helps homeowners proactively care for their homes to catch and mitigate issues before they become costly repairs.
This partnership will provide select Swyfft customers in the Bay Area and Houston markets with Comprehensive Home Care which includes bi-annual home maintenance check-ups and the ability to book home maintenance services on-demand through Sheltr's app.
There are 79 million owner-occupied homes in the U.S. and 22 million of those homeowners experience an unanticipated home repair each year. Thus, modern insurance carriers such as Swyfft realize the value in moving beyond traditional models and are offering customers value-add, risk-mitigating services like preventative home maintenance.
"Today's consumers expect high-quality services to be delivered at the touch of a button. This includes homeowners buying insurance and agents selling it. But the Swyfft experience is more than fast quoting," said Sean Maher, CEO of Swyfft. "It's about relationships and providing unique services that benefit our customers and agent. We're excited to partner with another innovative program like Sheltr who can make preventative risk services seamless for all."
